ACI: Concrete Testing

2 Day Course
AFE # for DOT- 7122

You must register with South Dakota Ready Mix Concrete Association to take this class.

ACI's Concrete Field Testing Technician Certification covers seven ASTM testing standards.  

The seven standards are:
  1. ASTM C 31 - Making and Curing Test Specimens in the Field
  2. ASTM C 138 - Density, Yield, and Gravimetric Air Content
  3. ASTM C 143 - Slump
  4. ASTM C 172 - Sampling
  5. ASTM C 173 - Air Content by the Volumetric Method (Roll-a-Meter)
  6. ASTM C 231 - Air Content by the Pressure Meter
  7. ASTM C 1064 - Temperature

You must pass both a written and performance exam to become certified. Certifications last for 5 years. To become re-certified you must again pass a written and performance exam.

**Please note: The morning of the 2nd day involves training done for the DOT employees and emphasizes the differences between SDDOT & ACI. This portion of the training course is mandatory for DOT employees and while we strongly encourage all others to attend, it is strictly voluntary for them to do so.
